Get Up for the Yorkshire Derby!

I'm settling in with a delicious cuppa to watch my beloved against Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield this morning. We're fresh off a good, solid win against Evil Cardiff, and this one is a true relegation dogfight - 17th v. 18th. I'll take a point from the off. Join me for all the action this morning on the LOB!

Steve Evans cutting a gigantic figure on the sideline. He needs your weight loss program, mate.

The FA Cup First Round starts this weekend and there has already been a giant killing as Salford defeated Notts County 2-0 yesterday

Agreed. Perhaps he requires a double program! Those lost pounds could be donated as points for Leeds sin the standings.

Naughty by Dean Whitehead on Antenucci

7:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Liam was more than just a mini Copper a s he came in with a great block then Stuart Dallas concedes a corner to the Terriers.

7:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh dear - now Wootton and Cooper have collided into each other as they lined up for the corner. What a calamity!

7:44 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Hey Boys

I am here. I have the Southcoast match on the telly and SS on the computer. The first link I opened up was the Yorkshire derby... keep me informed on that match

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

An unusual event as two Leeds players collide while getting ready to defend a corner. It was Scott Wooton and Liam Copper with Copper still down. Bob is not amused.

7:45 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

We are off at Dean Court

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning UWS. We will. The W. Yorkie derby has temporarily been halted because two Leeds players collided into each other defending a corner and one is still down for the count.

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

LIam Cooper is the mini Cooper that is like my car. In the repair shop for weeks on end!

7:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Looks like Cooper is down for the count. Sol Bamba will replace him after he's carted off the pitch on a stretcher.

7:47 AM

Morning, UWS - how are you, mate?

Come on you WHITES.... well YELLOWS

COME ON YOU CHERRIES

7:48 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I may miss some of this early match because of my 5 miler. Not sure when we are going to go


Decent effort by Bournemouth. Decent save
Corner to the Cherries.
Comes to nothing

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Rob elliot pushes away a near post effor tfrom Josh King for A cherries corner.

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A standing ovation from both sets of fans as Liam Copper is stretchered off and Sol Bamba is on.

Yourselves?

Looking forward to a short work week. We have Wednesday off for Veteran's Day and I am off Friday as well taking Kathy to a procedure. Three day week for me

7:51 AM

It was a corner to Leeds and not the Terriers a, but it came to nothing/

I am doing well too. Tired after a busy week. I hope you enjoy the three day week and wish Kathy the best.

Silvestre smothers a decent looking attack for Hudders through Dempsey.

7:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Not a good afternoon so far for Scott Wootton. Now he's picked up a yellow for a trademark ManYoo Academy challenge.

7:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Scott Wooton receives the first card of the match that matches the color of his jersey, for a late challenge on Bunn

7:54 AM

Did you see the end of Real PSG match
Ronaldo whispered to Blanc
Apparently, he said that he loved the way they play and I would love to work for you
So Ronny off to Paree

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He's showing why he SAF cut him loose. First , he knocked on a teammate faster than Mike Tyson then picks up the first booking of the match

7:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Huddersfield have had the best of it so far.

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I did not see the match , but heard that PSG were unlucky to lose. Interesting from Ronny, who seems to not want to work for Raffa.

7:57 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I really want the Cherries to win this one
I thought they would be doing better
They have lost players thru injury
I want them to win by six and go above Chelsea
Win by five and have Chelsea lose would work too

7:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Martin Cranie goes into the book for a cynical tug when we were on the break. This has been a really choppy first half with not a lot of good footer.

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, Bob. Despite that, Silvestri has not been forced to mae a save, A little cagey.

7:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm with you on that one - however, I do have the Cherries in the bottom three in my PPP.

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He was down, but it was definitely a deserved booking.

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I second that. I would like those two results, but also have the Cherries in the bottom three.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Stuart DAllas wins another Leeds corner.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner is cleared.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's sunny in West Yorkshire, but dreary and rainy on the South Coast. Isn't it usually the other way around?

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Terriers win a corner off the throw from Billing that had top billing.

8:01 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Silvestri is finally put to the test, stopping a shot by Bunn.

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Terriers take it short. and Wells puts Bunn through as Silevstri makes a comfortable save with Silvester like reflexes.

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Terriers are forced into a change as Billing is off injured and is replaced Huws. The 18 year old looked distraught while walking off.

8:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Huddersfield make an early change - both sides have been forced to go to their benches early.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm thinking that any result from the match on the South Coast will work because I have picked both teams for the drop.

8:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm glad to see the back of Billing - he looked a bit speedy.

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Rob elliot makes another save for the Toon as the Cherries are denied again

8:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Now there is another injury. At this rate, we'll never finish this first half. What an odd one.

8:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I guess what you think that change had top billing!

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Josh King with both chances for the Cherries and both were near post efforts. Junior Stanislaus played him through

8:08 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

First, I don't think the big news at OT was the crowd booing for taking off Martial...we all know LVG is being blackmailed by Rooney and he has to play. I know he scored the goal but he was still crap
The main thing I want LVG to pay attention is what the crowd sang during the second half


WE WANT TO ATTACK
WE WANT TO ATTACK
WE'RE MANCHESTER UNITED
WE WANT TO ATTACK

That says it all... but LVG just ignores 76,000 people and Paul Scholes and said
Sticks and Stones will break my bones but 'names' will never hurt me

What a numpty!
Scholes is 100% right.... United are boring

8:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

UWS would do well to do his five miler when United play the Baggies.Between Pubis and LVG we will be lucky to see any shots on target.

8:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree with you 100% . You can yell ATTACK ATTACK during your five miler.

8:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Dean Whitehead should be able to continue.

8:10 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I am going to be a missing for a bit
I am off to walk Shadow and then probably my 5 miler... possibly on 3 today.... not sure

I'll be back

8:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mowatt was well wide with that snap shot, unlike the spectacular goal he scored on Tuesday

8:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Off you go, mate - have a good walkies!

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! AYOZE GIVES THE TOON THE LEAD AGAINST THE RUN OF PLAY

8:12 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Just before I leave... The Toon take the lead
Perez nets for Newcastle...they have been second best but are in the lead

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheers mate. Enjoy the walkies and yell ATtACK ATTACK!

8:12 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

MOT!!!

8:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The goal came off a long possession after winning the ball in their own half then all of a sudden Wijnaldum played through Ayoze and he shot past Federici, who got a hand to the shot , but couldn't prevent the goal.

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It looks like eight minutes of stoppage time.

8:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sol Bamaba fouls Nahki Wells just outside the box and gets a card to match his jersey.

8:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Wells is over as they enter eight minutes of stoppage time.

8:18 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh dear - Wootton is in trouble again. He's running away from the action hoping that the ref won't take any action. He seems to be getting a bollocking. He's really on thin ice and Evans should probably yank him at the interval.

8:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wooton with a nasty foul on Huws and will be fortunate not to get a second yellow. He escapes an early bath to the relief of Bob. Just a lecture as the Terriers players are none too pleased.

8:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed mate. He may put your side in trouble at the rate he's going.

8:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Rob elliot with a great save from a header from Josh King off a Cherries corner. The y get a second bite at the cherry

8:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WAY HAY ! STUART DALLAS GIVES LEEDS THE LEAD,

8:22 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL!!!!!!!!!!

YESSSSS!!!!!!!

Antenucci knocks home the opener!

8:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry . It was Antenucci with the goal. The Terriers will not be pleased as Wooton, who should have been sent off a minute earlier played a long ball to Stuart Dallas,. He played a one two with Chris Wood, then played a nice ball for Antenucci to ta in. Congrats mate

8:24 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Terrific interplay between Dallas and Wood out wide right and then a peach of a cross from Dallas and Mirko knocked it home.

And now Wood has made it 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

8:24 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We're romping it!

0-2 Leeds!

8:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WAY HAY !!!! LEEDS GO TWO UP . A GREAT STOPPAGE TIME.

8:24 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Stoppage time continues with Murphy now down for the count.

8:26 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

This is one of the longest first halfs that I can remember.

8:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Luke Murphy is now down. The Terriers wanted offside on a Leeds counter, but MArk Hudson played hiom on as he was caught out . His cross was gifted by a Terriers defender to Chris Wood, who made no mistake from a yard out.

8:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. It's been a marathon first half.

8:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Toon lead on the South Coast, but Toon keeper Rob Elliot, has been forced to make at least four spectacular saves to preserve that lead.

8:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's halftime and Leeds are two up. Congrats mate.

8:28 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Finally the whistle blows in the 56th minute. And what a stoppage time it was, with two goals for us from Antenucci and Wood - our two strikers. I'm absolutely delighted with that one.

0-2 at the interval.

8:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Almost halftime on the South Coast and Janmaat booked for an aggressive challenge. I think that was harsh as I agree with Clive Allen that the conditions played a part and Janmaat did get the ball.

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Only a minute of stoppage time , which is in sharp contrast to the match in W Yorkshie. Tiote with a requisite booking for a foul on Stanislaus.

8:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's halftime on the South Coast as the Toon are one up despite total domination by the Cherries , who have forced Rob Elliot into four spectacular saves.

8:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Stats can be misleading. The Toon are one up at the half, bu the Cherries have out shot the Toon 12-1 , with four of those shots on target. The Cherries have won nine corner to nil for the Toon. The Cherries need to put away some of those chances.

8:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Looks like BEin have rehabilitated the sexist duo of Andy and Ole Hairy Hands for a new Friday evening show that I won't be bothering to DVR.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway from W Yorkshire.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The deadly duo have been on BEIN for a while, but I will opt out of that show too.

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Well wide by Lolly Pop as the Terriers attack from the off.

8:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Great tackle from Bamba to stop that early Hudders attack.

8:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Bright start for Hudders - we need to keep the foot on the gas.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sol Bamba tackles Dawn Wells for a corner then Bunn , with a free header from the corner, heads well wide.

8:46 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I am back from walkies with Shadow as the second half starts
Got updates from Fotmob that Leeds score two goals!!!

8:46 AM

Harry Bunn shoots straight at Silvestre as the second half is underway from Dean Court.

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mowatt is down injured for Leeds.

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Terriers have a spot kick? That looked a fair tackle by Mowatt.

8:48 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

SS talking about boring United

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Another spectacular save by Rob elliot from a header by Matt Ritchie from a great cross by Josh King.

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Welcome back, UWS. Leeds did score twice in stoppage time and Leeds were fortunate not be a man down seconds before the first goal. Terriers players and fans were not pleased.

8:50 AM

Big Nose says it matters if United win something but doing it boring... I agree with the scouse for the first time

8:51 AM

Another wasted chance by the Cherries as Dan Gosling shoots well over from a great cross.

8:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

YESSS!!!!!!!!!!

What a strike from Alex Mowatt!!!!!

0-3!

8:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WAY HAY! MOWATT PUTS LEEDS THREE UP.

8:52 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Big Nose says that United are not going forward enough... agree with him 100%

8:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I reckon that your United might just be able to respond to the fans challenge today against the Baggies.

8:53 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Congrats Bob

Wish our United would score three!!

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mowatt emulates that strike against Evil Cardiff on Tuesday . The Terriers took a long throw in their own half that a Leeds player headed on and Mowatt score with a left footed screamer in the upper 90 from about 25- 30 yards out.

8:54 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Merse says that today is a perfect chance to play one holding midfielder. Play D3.14... and go for it

I am agreeing with him too

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Congrats Bob. This could be Leeds's' best result in a while. Surely, celebrations are in order.

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Merse has been spot on with his comments.

8:55 AM

Like for like as James Vaughan , the Toffees reject, is on for Dawn Wells. He's hoping it's more than just a three hour cruise.

The Beeb just said that the match at Huddersfield had a first half of 58 minutes!!!

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry. It's Wooton , who sheds blood for the cause and is off for treatment. He's been in the wars today

8:58 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I fear for United today
WBA will sit back
United will not have any idea how to open them up

0-0 or an odd goal for either team

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's correct. It was a marathon first half. There was an eight minute stoppage then two other stoppages./

8:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - great stop from Silvestre to maintain the clean sheet.

8:59 AM

Wahay! Bournemouth in the bottom three, finally. That'll help my PPP score.

9:04 AM

I will not be satisfied. Like , UWS. I want United to play entertaining football, not grind out results against mediocre sides.

9:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Mitrovic has, at least, been behaving himself recently. But he is a chippy little sod.

9:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I don't think it makes a difference for me since that means one of my bottom three picks replaces another. I may gain a point .

9:06 AM

He has and was involved in the build up to the goal. He's been in decent form/.

9:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nice save by Silvestri from Lolly Pop.

9:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Whitehead with a long range screamer, but unlike Mowatt, cannot keep his shot on target.

9:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That third goal has knocked the stuffing out of this one. Blow up, ref - it's all over!

9:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A cl;ever move by Steve Evans as Wooton, who was fortunate not to get an early bath , is replaced by Tom Adeyemi, on loan from evil Cardiff. The Terriers counter by bringing on Duane Holmes for Joe Lolley Pop.

9:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. You must be delighted. How will you celebrate?

It's now starting to drizzle in W Yorkshire after a sunny first half while the sun is now out on the South Coast after a rainy first half.

Botaka , signed from dutch club, Excelsior, is on for Stuart Dallas, who had a great match

9:21 AM

Dallas looks to be the Leeds representative at the Euros next summer.

9:21 AM

Joe Murphy does well to tip over an effort from Jordan Botaka.

9:22 AM

Mowatt is lectured by the ref for taking too long at the corner.

9:23 AM

Not economical by Adam Smith as he's booked for rugby tackle just outside his box.

9:24 AM

The free kick from Thauvin was headed over by Collocini. Federici appeared to tip it over, but a goal kick was given. The Toon's second shot of the match

9:26 AM

Four minutes of stoppage time.

The Terriers make a mess of a golden chance as Dempsey was put through with just Silvestri to beat, but was too unselfish and played a wayward pass.

It appears to be two holding middies. I'm not sure why when we're at home to such a defensive side. The stats show that these re two of the top three sides with the FEWEST chances created.It looks like a borefest.

Congratulations on a great giant killing result by Salford City . Well done.Perhaps our United learned from watching them . Sadly, probably not.

United coming out
LVG waving... no one is waving to you!!

Someone on WBA refuses to wear a poppy or acknowledge national anthems

As you were mentioning, I don't know why LVG is persisting with two defensive middies today, especially against a side like West Brom who set out their stall away from home for a point. You need fire-power to break down sides like that. It seems like the curse of the Premiership.

Mike Dean, the most arrogant official in the Prem along with LVG the most arrogant manager in the Prem. It's not a winning combination.

It is just like all the England talk about holding middies when they were playing Trinidad in WC 10

Only won 1-0

We're off at OT

United get us underway at Old Trafford.

Attack, attack, attack, attack, attack!

McClean shows the Baggies' intentions from the off there with a XXXX one on Blind. Should have got at least a yellow.

Three nil nillers in a row in the league... haven't had four in 94 years'

Should have been a yellow for the Poppyless Plonker

Mclean definitely not with a clean tackle as he should have been booked for that foul on Blind

I guess Darmian and D3.14 are in LVG's doghouse

Newcastle's goal was there only shot on target
Sounds like another United I know

I hope it's not the first time in 94 years as I would love to see us create chances and break down this cumbersome side.

That was so bad by Young there
Again, United are already starting too slow... it's three minutes in

The Toon had a second chance late on, but otherwise looked like our United.

Happy Birthday to David De Gea. A win would be a nice present.

Another annoying thing about modern football is when the forward sprints back to the ball and lays it back... what's the point if no one runs into the space provided and the ball gets delivered
